"Given the turbulence of the last few months, the challenging macroeconomic backdrop, and the continued cannabis price compression we are seeing, I am pleased to report a solid quarter. We generated solid revenue performance and positive Adjusted EBITDA, driven by gross margin expansion and strong cost controls. We continue to hold ~9% of Nevada's retail market share and top five brands in every category, demonstrating the strength of our Nevada operations and brand value," said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "In spite of recent events, Planet 13 is generating positive Adjusted EBITDA and continues to have a strong balance sheet with over $17 million in cash and effectively no debt. We are well capitalized to continue executing our announced growth plan in Florida and Nevada."

"Towards the end of the quarter, we opened our new Illinois location and are working towards closing our acquisition of VidaCann and opening our consumption lounge at the Las Vegas SuperStore. These exciting additions are set to drive Planet 13's next leg of growth," said Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "We've built an attractive portfolio of operations in highly sought-after states. As we look to 2024, our goal is to prepare for the exciting potential of adult use in Florida and increase our scale, efficiency and operating leverage in core states to drive growth in operating cashflow and shareholder value."
